He quickly gained the confidence of the engineering managers

Knowles_Meade

Chris Meade facilitated two Strengths-Based Leadership sessions in the Intelligent Audio Division of Knowles; one with the senior leadership team and another with the broader management team. With his impressive knowledge of the subject, he was able to quickly gain the confidence of the engineering managers who pushed on the concepts and asked probing questions on the topic of leadership.  He is a very experienced facilitator with a genuine style that comes across immediately. This was definitely time well spent for our team and in fact, many of the managers are taking the StrengthsFinder concepts back to their teams in anticipation of building a trusting, development culture. We highly recommend Chris and look forward to working with him again in the future!

Great story telling skills

Meridian Police Dept

As the coordinator of the Emerging Leaders Program for the Meridian Police Department, I immediately knew that I wanted Chris Meade to be one of our guest presenters. Talking to a group of police officers is not an easy task; however, Chris agreed to the challenge and has been able to connect with the program participants by using his great story telling skills that ties the key points of each story into a larger narrative. Over the years, we always enjoyed his insightful and thought provoking presentations on various leadership topics. He brings a fresh and timely talk that inspires people with vision and passion to pursue excellence in their endeavors. Chris has a unique way of getting me to think deeply and then act on what I’m learning. I’m a better leader today because of Chris’ insightful talks. During his talks, he is able to draw from his experience as a leader in business, the non-profit sector, a university professor, but more importantly from his sincere desire to see people grow and develop as leaders.

Helps open the door for discovery

Brad Rumsey

I’ve had the opportunity to study and apply the principles that Chris has taught. The principles have made a difference. Chris’s leadership style is empowering and motivates people to look inside their own life to answer those difficult questions. Chris simply helps open the door for discovery. I’ve taken the same servant leadership principles and applied to my leadership style.

Deep passion and energy

John Purtill

Chris brings a deep passion and energy that has caused me to dig deep and reflect on who I am. Through this process one develops a holistic skill-set to be a more competent leader in today’s dynamic, ever changing world. No greater example of this approach can be found than what is offered in Chris’ writings. As I’ve listened to the Leadership Alive Audio Book, I find it reinforces the principles he has taught over the years. Chris’ message has served not only as a guide to my professional life but it has transcended into my personal life as well. Because of this process, I have better defined my values, morals and ethos. As a result, I have become a more centered individual.

Dynamic and inspirational

Aneke Binford

Chris Meade is one of the most dynamic and inspirational people I have had the opportunity to know. Chris has an electric personality and possesses the ability to ignite passion, inspire change, and encourage growth. He challenges those around him to develop new ways to view their realities. Chris absorbs his surroundings and can turn an ordinary interaction into an extraordinary learning experience. Chris commands an in-depth understanding of leadership and is driven to pass this knowledge on to others. Chris has a wealth of knowledge, but is humble and modest in his instruction. His passion for people and his desire to help them achieve their highest goals is genuine. I feel blessed to have had to opportunity to know and learn from Chris, and my life is truly more enriched as a result.

Inspiring

Brent R. Flock

Chris Meade is inspiring both personally and professionally. Chris shares his lessons of leadership in a way that are easy to understand and applicable to dailylife. I attended one of Chris’ one-day strategic conference workshops. When the time came for me to lead my own strategic conference, I was able to provide my agency with the guidance to successfully uncover their mission. Chris’ style of presentation is very engaging whether it be through his writings or seminars. If you are looking for a deeper meaning within yourself or your organization, Chris can guide you through the process of discovery!

One of those unique and rare individuals

Keith Nyquist

Throughout my decade or so of professional work experience and higher education, there have been one or two people who I feel have earned the title of a leader in this sense of the word; Chris Meade is one of those unique and rare individuals. Not a single day goes by where my actions are not influenced by the tremendous value that Chris instilled upon me. In Chris’ book, “Leadership Alive: Changing Leadership Practices in the Emerging 21st Century Culture,” Chris describes the key elements to being successful in business and in life. I have recommended his book to several people in my business and personal life, and all those who have used his principles in their lives have found it not only rewarding and successful (when implemented), but also powerful and transformative. What makes Chris unique and special is that he absolutely, unequivocally lives his words and is a truly inspiring person to those around him. Pupils of Chris are often transformed into better leaders because of his unique ability to add real and immediate value to their lives. I am a better person because of Chris Meade and I believe he can and will serve many people in the future in a similar manner.

Dynamic and introspective approach

Tracy Olsen

Chris Meade brings a dynamic and introspective approach to leadership development. His ability to empower people with skills to learn from within before leading others provides for a strong leadership foundation. Chris’s passion to teach was immediately evident from the moment I first met him. His Leadership Alive brings a worldview perspective that enhances ones paradigm. Chris makes learning fun, fulfilling and exciting. He has made me a more comfortable and confident leader.

Experience in the business world

Lynn Seibold

Chris is an inspirational, sometimes humorous, engaging, and motivational speaker with experience in the business world, the university, and to the non-profit arena. He brings a fresh and timely talk that inspires people with vision and passion to pursue excellence in their endeavors. Chris has a unique way of getting me to think deeply and then act on what I’ve learned. I’m a better leader and person today because of Chris’ insightful discussions. Chris brings energy wherever he goes, and pulls everyone’s ideas and strengths into the discussion. I have shared with others several of his patented leadership techniques, such as the “Head-Hands-Heart Model” and built many of his techniques into my leadership style.

Unique ability to communicate

Kevin Jackson

I’ve had the great opportunity for several years of listening to Chris Meade speak many times. I can attest to his unique ability to communicate so that people are able to grasp profound concepts and truths as well as anyone I have ever listened to. Chris places the “a-ha” component in his topics that clarifies many difficult issues and topics. There is a passion and awareness to his audience’s needs that is dynamic and life changing as he speaks. His insight and character have dramatically changed me as a person and has also caused me to look at challenges in life with a different perspective.

Timely and extremely appropriate

Debbie Geyer

Thank you so much for your willingness to come and speak at our recent Idaho City Clerks, Treasurers, and Finance Officers Association (ICCTFOA) Institute. The information that you presented was very timely and extremely appropriate for the members in attendance. Your presentation style is captivating and I received several positive comments about your thought-provoking material and the wonderful illustrations used to clarify the message. Personally, I have taken to heart the material you presented and actually returned to my workplace with a new vision for improvement. I know that others will also benefit from hearing you speak.

Thought provoking

Lindsey Wallgren

I have known Dr. Chris Meade for many years. I have read several of his books, attended many of his speaking engagements. Without a doubt, Dr. Meade is one of the most energetic, thought provoking, and engaging speakers I’ve heard. He has a tremendous ability to take concepts, break them down, “unpack” them, and apply them to the individual or group. Every opportunity I have had to learn from him has resulted in significant personal and professional growth. Most recently I attended a presentation on “Financially Alive,” which goes beyond simple financial stewardship, and challenges the learner in other areas of work and life. I highly recommend and endorse Chris for any group or individual who wants to go deeper and accelerate growth and development.

Leadership Alive is different

David Cutbirth

Unlike many leadership programs and consulting services, Leadership Alive, Inc, is different because they not only help train local leaders but they also assist leaders throughout the country at no charge who are either under-served or who are unable to take advantage of traditional training programs. Leadership Alive, Inc. is led by, Christopher Meade, Ph.D. who has worked as a small business owner, entrepreneur, MBA university professor, non-profit leader, and life coach. Chris brings a unique perspective that is insightful and helpful in developing the whole person. Chris helps bring together the heart, mind, and hands of a person to not only “know” but “do”. Today, I’m in an expanded role as a leader and I’m living proof that Chris has added value and acumen into my skill-set and into my life as a leader and lifelong learner. Chris has not only equipped me, but he has helped me lead others to develop their vision and passion as well.

Resources for ongoing learning

Mike Meade

We highly recommend Leadership Alive and the leadership principles presented by Chris Meade. Chris is highly engaging, thoughtful, well researched and delivers the training and coaching in ways everyone “gets it” and enjoys it. We appreciated that in addition to the presentations there were also books and WEB resources for ongoing learning and reinforcing the principles, so the learning doesn’t stop with the event but continues into life practices. Our team has been inspired and mobilized to do what we are called to do and fulfill our mission.

The ability to “unpack” a truth

Konrad Ziesing

I am pleased to recommend to you Dr. Christopher Meade. My life has been indelibly marked by his life and teaching. His perspectives on leadership have helped define my own leadership style and I am a better leader for it. One of the unique gifts that Chris has is the ability to “unpack” a truth, to get to its core, but more importantly, to discover how that truth applies to life, business, and leadership. Chris’ thorough introspection challenges me to look beyond the surface, but also not lose sight of the big picture. As a result, I believe I lead with more compassion and grace and the end-sum gain is truly transformational. If you would like to see your organization rise beyond status quo, you need someone who can skillfully speak to the heart‐core of your leadership. Dr. Chris Meade is one person I know who can do that effectively, genuinely, and passionately. You will not be disappointed!

Konrad Ziesing
Pastor & Adjunct Professor

We highly recommend him

Vineyard Community Church

This year we worked with Dr. Chris Meade through a series of Leadership Alive seminars to help our team members grow in their ability to lead the various projects and departments they oversee. Chris helped us to better understand and implement strategic planning, growth, and team mobilization. We highly recommend him to your organization if you want to have your staff or clients begin to think outside of the box and to see areas within their scope of influence where they can lead more effectively. He also did a terrific job at the teaching engagements that he spoke at. Chris is an outstanding and creative communicator. He helped our staff better reach and engage the people in our community.

A renewed sense of inspiration

Kory Taylor

Chris Meade, as an instructor and a speaker, has brought me a renewed sense of inspiration on the subject of leadership and public speaking. Speaking as someone from both a military and corporate background, leadership qualities can often fall to those who shout the loudest and potentially be the most ruthless in their personal quests for achievement. Chris has shown qualities that exemplified the idealism of progressive team building and becoming a voice for the people rather than over them. During my enrollment with Chris, he has demonstrated, repeatedly, great measures of patience and understanding, while also providing a sense of passion to both the learning of my fellow students as well as a desire to understand each and every one of us in the progression of our education. One of my most esteemed measures of leadership is the ability to have a compassionate understanding of those who follow them and the utmost desire to see the best in them, regardless of personal and spiritual creed and Chris, on numerous occasions, has shown himself truly capable of such a measure.

Kory Taylor

Genuine, caring and deliberate

Johnny and Sabrina Chapman

We have had the opportunity of knowing Chris Meade for over 20 years. Chris has been our mentor, teacher and friend. Chris is genuine, caring and deliberate. Any interaction with him, formal or informal always leaves you feeling encouraged and inspired. Chris has a wonderful way of helping you to pursue the dreams and goals deep within your heart without compromising relationships or values. His communication style is engaging and warm. Whether listening to a message or reading his books, there are wonderful, life changing pearls of wisdom that immediately impact our lives. We are ecstatic that Chris continues to investment in leaders and businesses. We fully endorse Chris Meade and Leadership Alive.

A man of integrity

Jim Adams

I have known Chris Meade for twenty years. During that time he has proven to be a man of integrity who has remained faithful and fruitful in season and out of season. For two decades I have watched him manage an extremely demanding career while also cultivating a thriving relationship with his wife and children. Chris is interesting and insightful and has the ability to stimulate creative thinking in those who know him. If you get to know him, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Very helpful

Darin Gere

Leadership Alive resources have been very helpful to me in my counseling practice. As a motivational speaker and consultant, Chris Meade has added value and acumen into my skill-set as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Several of the principles Chris teaches have proven extremely effective for me and for my clients. Each time I have heard Chris speak I have been inspired by his mix of wisdom, humor, energy, and insight.

Connecting to people

Jeremy Thompson

I have been impressed by the numerous ways Chris has demonstrated leadership and encouraged others to be leaders in their own fields. Every time I hear Chris speak, I am able to take something away that I can apply to my life, home, classroom, education and personal life. Chris has a way of connecting to people and making them more aware of their strengths and potential.

Chris is an asset

Alex Domingo

I have had the good fortune of counting myself as one of Chris Meade’s students in recent years. I’m cautious not to take on the moniker of former pupil, as I truly believe Chris has awakened the “life‐long student” that has been hibernating within me. I will always be a student of Chris’ as he continuously has something to offer, and more importantly he considers himself a student of those who he works with or instructs. Chris’ collaborative approach to leadership development is based on the tenants of trust, respect and ethics. For these reasons alone, Chris is an asset to any project or organization that he contributes to. Chris’ value is the manner in which he is able to extract the all important real‐world experiences of the participants. It is these experiences that form the bedrock of lessons and impactful techniques that leaders can return to their organizations and effect positive change in areas such as work culture and productivity. In order to encourage leaders to open up about their own experiences amongst their peers, it helps to have a leadership coach with outstanding packaging. Chris’ packaging comes in the form of a servant helping to eliminate the roadblocks that prevent students from realizing all they have to offer as leaders. I wish everyone could enjoy Chris’ humble, inspirational, and indispensable insight on today’s approach to developing leadership in the workplace and within our communities.

Chris Meade brings a unique and inspiring perspective to the discipline of leadership. He is able to present in terms that are easily understandable, and definitely applicable to anyone who aspires to improve their leadership abilities. His inspirational and interactive style encompasses real world experience with proven techniques, which have allowed me the opportunity to introspectively explore my own unique style, while embracing the ideas of others.

Stands apart from the multitude

Trent Stoker

Dr. Chris Meade stands apart from the multitude of leadership trainers who teach others to think like they do. Instead, Chris will challenge you to think for yourself. He is a gifted instructor, a passionate learner, and a deep thinker who does not shy away from the whole truth. He introduced me to principles and practical skills that I continue to apply to my professional and personal life. I gained greater confidence in myself as a leader thanks to Dr. Chris Meade.

The whole leadership package

Maureen O'Toole

Chris Meade is the whole leadership package – author, motivational speaker, mentor, professor, and entrepreneur. Chris’ ability to bring relevant personal experience and humility to a leadership environment creates an atmosphere in which participants feel free to explore their own adventures and misadventures in a nonjudgmental, supportive, growth-focused environment. Warm, open, friendly and able to integrate humor into any situation, Chris blends well with any group or organization. Chris’ extensive knowledge of leadership through graduate and post graduate studies is remarkable. He is well read in trade and scholarly leadership materials and can easily blend that understanding to any situation. Masterful at prompting and facilitating discussion, Chris’ approach encourages reflection and at the personal and professional level. Chris’ books are wrapped in personal insight and Christian scripture and can be profoundly moving. Having studied under his tutelage as a graduate student and worked with him on a long-term advisory committee, I would actively seek out Chris as a leadership mentor, speaker and trainer.

Dr. Chris Meade’s enthusiasm and expertise in leadership application can propel your team to new heights. His presentations will capture the attention of any work group and generate sustained dialogue resulting in new ideas and improved teamwork. I had the privilege of being mentored by Dr. Meade in graduate school. I attribute much of my leadership exploration and development to his thought provoking books and classes. He focuses on wealth as a balance among several aspects of one’s personal and professional life, giving your team the opportunity to reflect on the many benefits that balance can offer in terms of productivity, morale and profits. The opportunity to be part of Meade’s audience is one I hope for your organization.
